Summary: Being an avid music listener, there hardly goes a day without me spending at least one or two hours listening to my iPod Touch. My previous mobile earphones during the last decade were the Sony EX-series (e.g. MDR-EX71), whose sound quality and isolation I was very happy with.
Summary: I should have known these being my second pair of Sennheisers............................ The first pair I had failed in the right ear, this pair although still working is falling to bits before my eyes (or ears).
CX 400-II headphones give great quality depending on the price
2 November 2010
Excerpt: The first thing I should mention is that there are fakes out there, a lot of them. I bought some CX 300s a few month backs and they were unfortunately fake. I am saying this because it may be a little confusing when deciding whether to buy these headphones as the price may seem to good to be true.
Pros: Long life depending on price, good quality, noise cancellation works .
Excerpt: My husband's previous job was as a sound engineer, and he's always praised Sennheiser products, so when I saw the Sennheiser CX 400 II Precision Noise Isolating Ear-canal Phones with Integrated Volume Control for the bargain price of £20 on Amazon I purchased them and put them away for Christmas.

Real Sennheisers sound good. Wish they lasted as well, too. And there are a lot of fakes around.

Summary: [Update: Reduced the star rating from 5 to 3. They were the genuine article and very good while they lasted (see the original review below). Unfortunately, after eight months of careful and considerate use, the infamous, common fault appeared: the volume and the sound quality of the left earphone...
Great replacement for standard iPod ear buds, but only for under £20.

Excerpt: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A SENN-SIBLE INVESTMENT? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have been happily and contentedly using a pair of Sennheiser CX300 headphones for the best part of two years now, so when I recently acquired a Samsung Netbook, I decided to relegate them to my laptop bag and invest in some new,...
Summary: Was initially happy with these earphones, but they only lasted around 5 months before the lead started fraying where it connected to the volume control. Then the sound went in the left ear rendering them useless.
Summary: These Sennheiser's were bought to replace the Bose in ear model I had before. Whilst the Bose sounded good I was disappointed with their build quality. For the price of these Sennheiser and the positive reviews on the sound I thought I'd give them a go.
